Open letter to Justice Katju – Happy New Year and Get Well Soon !

Sticky post

1st Jan’ 2015 Dear Justice  Makrand Katju Greetings !! Your recent post on Gay and Lesbian Relationships (LGBT) ,    created a lot of ruckus,    as you tweeted , sadly ,               you were called a homophobic also, and then your CLARIFICATION further aggravated the ire. I am writing to you, as to why it happened .
